Bath Time
Relieve the aches and pains by adding 10 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil into warm bath water before bedtime for a good nights rest

Aromatherapy Diffusers 
To help clear the sinuses and relieve some of those nasty symptoms of the cold/flu, you can mix and diffuse Eucalyptus, Lavender, Rosemary, Lemon and Peppermint essential oils

Essential oils are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any diseases. Please remember that aromatherapy should not be used as a substitute for proper medical treatment. Always consult a medical doctor, or an alternative medical practitioner when suffering from any disease, illness, or injury, or before attempting any herbal regimens. Keep all products away from children and pets. As with any product, they can be toxic if misused.
